This large and very natural Order is readily distinguishable from its near allies W
a combination of well marked characters. The ternary arrangement of the parts O"A
the perianth, the small, closely packed, cxtrorse, almost sessile anthers, the nume-
rous small ovaries, the distinct often siimtate fruits seated on a rounded torus, and
the ruminated albumen, characterize all the typical species, though one or other of
these characters is occasionally absent, or unavailing as a distinction. The ruminated
albumen, though universal in the Order, occurs also in Myristicacea, and to a small
extent in a few genera of Menispermacea* The ternary arrangement of the Uowcr
